Investors bought securities, sometimes borrowing money with loans secured by the shares they were buying. In today's language, they bought shares on margin.

If the value of the securities dropped below that specified percentage, the lender would demand that the investor put up additional money to stay in line with the haircut. If the investor couldn’t come up with the added margin, the lender was entitled to liquidate the securities and recoup the loan amount.
